NO NEED FOR SWITCHING MAPS: TomTom's new Go live 1005 World device features voice controls and hands-free calling via Blutooth.

JOHANNESBURG – TomTom has launched its new TomTom Go Live 1005 World device in South Africa. The device, with 66 of TomTom’s most popular maps bundled, allows globetrotters to access maps without switching when crossing borders.

Maps included are North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia, Southern Africa and Europe. So you'll really have to fly to make maximum use of it.

Using the GO LIVE 1005 World, travellers also have access to the latest traffic information in South Africa with updates every two minutes. A new feature to the TomTom stable is the alternative route viewer function which allows drivers to view an alternative route.

Daan Henderickx, manager for TomTom South Africa, says: “Not only is the Go Live 1005 World a daily companion with local LIVE services, but now becomes a necessity when traveling abroad."

PRICING

The GO LIVE 1005 World device is priced at R3799 including one year’s free live services valued at R499.
